Weigh In {6 weeks postpartum}

My weigh in for week 6 was much more impressive than week 5.
I weighed in at 213.6. That's a loss of 3.8lbs..I'll take it! I have 9.6lbs to go to get to my pre-pregnancy weight. Then we'll be back to the "real" weight loss journey to get to my ultimate goal weight of 160lbs.
40 weeks pregnant vs. 6 weeks postpartum

So, at 6 weeks postpartum I went for a post-baby checkup. My doctor expressed that my postpartum weight loss was right on track and all my hormone levels were fine, but guess what? I am not yet healed after birthing a 9lb baby. I go back to get re-checked out on February 5th, so until then no working out or heavy activity. I want to heal so that I won't have to be re-stitched (sorry if TMI). So, taking it easy for the time being!

As for eating healthy, that is right on target as well. I feel like I am being extra conscious of everything I eat, whether it be I'm worried about the caloric value or if it will affect my son through breast milk. One area I do want to work harder at is drinking more water. I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night while feeding Bradley and think how much water did I drink today? Any?  That can't be good. I also need to give up caffeine. Hmph. I've been saying that for years.

I'm looking forward to an even lower number on the scale next week, so stay tuned! 
Me and my sweet baby Bradley <3
